When there are no words... Feb 5, 2008
..Michael Card is one of the few who has the insight to find some. The subject of lament is a diffult one. How do we offer our tears, fustrations and sometimes anger to God as a worship offering. Michael Card deals with this subject with wisdom from the life of Job, David, Jeremiah and finally Jesus. I was fortunate to attend a retreat where Michael Card walked thirty of us through this book and the process of lament. The good news; God always shows up. When we are in a season of lament and then we come out, God's presence is finally most important.
